Convert direct download links into to torrent links

Postby Sushanth S » Tue Aug 14, 2018 2:41 pm

Hi, I am trying to download a large file using the direct download link and for some reason, the download stops after downloading a few % and i can't even resume it. Same is the case with IDM as well. Is there any way I can download the file as Torrent? It is not available on any torrent site, So is it possible to convert direct download links to torrent links apart from using Burnbit? I know that it is not functional anymore.

That is not how torrents work. First someone must create the torrent while having the existing file on their computer. Then they upload it to a torrent site or give you the link to a torrent file.
